Why we need more Mandela Days

Mandela Day today, Monday 18 July 2011, is an important day because it rallies people to think about what they can do to improve the world around them. It's easy to be dismissive about such events; after all, is 67 minutes of someone's time or some commercially inspired corporate gesture really going to make much difference? Probably not, but it's an argument that somewhat misses the point.
